Just don't feel like working

Hi everyone. I finished up a lot of product for my pet business yesterday. So I decided to blow work off today. Which means I played along with  three challenges.
My first card is for The friday mashup. Kasey would like us to mash up a Vintage theme with a sketch.
Here is the sketch

Here is the card I created.

The supplies I used are
From Stampin' Up      Soft Suede, Pool Party, Whisper White, and the DSP is Everyday Enchantment. I also used the Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Corner Punch, Label Framelit, and Mixed Bunch Punch. The stamp set is  Full of Life.
Other supplies are
The leaves are Spellbinder, the Large Glitter Brad from The Angel Company and a coffee filter.
I can't get enough of these coffee filter flowers. You can make so many different kinds of real looking flowers.
Well that's card #63 of my own personal challenge of 365 challenge cards for 2012.

My next card is for the Paper Players. Here is their challenge.

Just like Anna Marie I too never seem to have enough cards fit for a man. So I 'm real happy to play along with this one. Here is my card.

I just love this tiger image from The Angel Company. I heat embossed it in black as well as my sentiment which is from the Stampin' Up set Teeny Tiny Wishes. My colors are More Mustard, Basic Black, and Whisper White. I used S.U. stripe embossing folder on the background and Words of love Embossing folder from Cuddlebug on the black strip. I used the Window punch and Modern Label punch on my sentiment. I thought it still needed something so I punch out 3 more of the window punches and attached them onto the black strip with the More Mustard Brads.
I really like how this card came out. Okay that's number 64.

Now for my last card. I'm playing along with the Simply Stampin' Challenge. This week it's a color challenge. Here are the colors.

There's a new baby girl in the family. These colors will work perfect for a baby card. Here is my card.

My scallop frame and circle are from Spellbinder and I don't have a clue where that little heart shape brad came from, but it needed it. Everything else is from Stampin' Up. The stamps I used are Baby Bundle and Teeny Tiny Wishes ( as usual). You know that set never leaves my desk. I used the Perfect Dots folder on my background and double punched my heart in two colors I used markers to color my buggy. Well that makes 65 challenge cards.
I hope you like all my cards. Please stop back again.
